  • Very interesting! Perfect size for a 10 year old to walk around in without too much reading! Cool boats and lake paraphernalia. Also connected to Rock n Roll Museum and Arnold’s Park Museum.

  • Great little museum, free entry, not crowded... the boats found on lake bottom were very interesting. The only downside is that the section with the amusement park rides is still closed.
  • We had a marvelous time at the Iowa Great Lakes Maritime Museum....we laughed a lot as we reminiced about our visits to Arnold's Park from years ago. It was great to see the Fun House attractions:. Sugar Bowl, Barrel, and Wood slide. The crazy mirrors caused tears of laughter!
  • Loved this place! Filled with amazing history of the lakes! Love the new pieces as well! So neat to go down the slide!
  • Very interesting! Such great stories and artifacts. Three museums at Arnold's Park....and they're free!
  • This place is awesome – they kept the deathtrap gunnysack slide from by guy in years. I fell down that slide when I was five years old and totally face planted vertically. The other day the same thing happened to my nephew – nothing wrong with the battle scar or two.
